"During my interviews I received feedback that I really knew myself. High Potential Academy has had a positive contribution to my successful application. My period as a working student at Adyen also gave me a lot of knowledge and experience, which I still apply in my work every day."

"I realized my master's wasn’t challenging enough, but I also didn't know which way I do wanted to go: consultancy, the legal profession or politics? A second master's was an option, but I had huge doubts about that as well. Through a fellow student I came into contact with High Potential Academy. The conversation with Lavy (Talent Development Coach) reassured me: I was able to figure out where I get energy from, but also how to get the most out of my master’s. I now know that I don't want to do a second master's and I have a clearer idea of what I want to work towards. The process has given me a lot of clarity so far.

"I've just started the High Potential Academy program and I've finished the first two coaching sessions. For me, the programme is important because I’m trying to find out what I like and where I see myself working. The first conversation with the Talent Development Coach was quite confronting: she kept on asking questions about the motivations behind my answers. I never had a conversation about this with anyone before. It was incredibly insightful! I am already so happy that I’ve started with the program, because of my enthusiasm my roommate also started with the trajectory. I would definitely recommend it to everyone!"

Maud Hendriksen | Masterstudent Biomedische Technologie
"I can remember my first day at HPA: the job interview training. Twelve graduates, all suited up: it felt like the first day at school! There was a certain tension; a kind of contest. It was immediately clear that everyone was ambitious, wanted to get good grades and build a good CV. After a while, it turned out that everyone shared a certain insecurity about their future. That surprised me; weren't these the hip young people who were so sure of themselves? I immediately felt at home. Both the coaches and the potentials at HPA have taught me that it's good to be critical at a job interview, that you also need to know what you don't like. It's good to look for what it is you do appreciate. Just two weeks after graduating, I had a job. Did I expect that? No. Could I have done it without help? Probably not. It's cool to know you're not alone, and even cooler if you get a bit of extra motivation along the way."
